Feed Your Entire Indoor Plant Jungle with One Fertilizer
If you love houseplants, you probably have more than one! When your home looks like a lush jungle of greenery, keeping track of every plant’s needs can be difficult. That’s why you need one perfectly balanced fertilizer to make every plant happy and keep your to-do list simple!
Our liquid indoor plant food has a 9-3-6 NPK ratio. The high nitrogen promotes healthy, green foliage while the other nutrients encourage roots to grow strong and flowering plants to produce buds. This fertilizer is also a great source of other nutrients your plants need to be healthy. It has calcium, magnesium, sulfur, copper, iron, manganese, and zinc, all of which will promote your plants’ overall growth and health.
This indoor plant food can be prepared the same way for all your indoor plants, but the frequency you need to apply it will vary for each plant. You’ll need to keep track of what each plant needs, but you’ll only have to prepare one fertilizer for all of them.
How to Use Liquid Fertilizer for Indoor Plants
You can prepare a large portion of liquid plant food at once if you need to feed many plants. Mix one teaspoon of fertilizer per one gallon of water. If you have any leftovers, you can store them in a container with a lid and keep them for up to six months.
To feed your plants, water them according to your regular watering schedule but occasionally replace the water with the fertilizer based on each plant’s needs.
How Often to Fertilize Indoor Plants
While this plant food is suitable for all plants, the frequency each plant will need it every month will vary depending on the plant.
Fast-growing plants usually need fertilizer every 2-3 weeks in spring and summer and less often in the winter. Slow or moderate-growing plants usually only need fertilizer once or twice every month in spring and summer and may not need it at all during the winter.
You can determine if your plants are getting enough nutrients based on how much you water them. Different plants will have different signs of not receiving enough water, but the most common signs are wilting, dropping leaves, or the development of crunchy brown leaves. Dehydration is challenging to reverse, but once you give your plants enough water, it will promote new growth. Brown leaves won’t be able to turn green again, so you’ll need to remove those.
A common sign of too much water is yellowing leaves. Leaves will start to turn yellow on the tips and edges until the entire leaf is yellow. Some plants may wilt or drop leaves if they receive too much water. The best way to tell if your plant is overwatered is to check the soil. If it’s wet, you may be overwatering it, or there may not be drainage holes in the container.
